Friday Night Plights

(An interesting play on words based on the show "Friday Night Lights")

Here we are again. Another Friday and we are left with more questions and no answers. What is the successful Friday Night for the marginally (emphasize marginally) successful 22 year old bachelor? I hang with my friends, celebrate the week's accomplishments over beers and have favorable interactions with the opposite sex. There seems to be this mass confusion though. I feel like I am starring in the 2010 version of the craptastic movie "The Happening" where instead of people killing themselves in hilariously creative ways, there are a bunch of 20-somethings wandering around straight up confused as fuck. Pardon my French.

I just had a friend over who was going on a date tonight. It was as if we never took a girl out before. Took me right back to age 14. Cologne distribution, outfit selection, girl prettiness all came into question. A classic shitshow. This lead me to think of this post. Now is the goal of a guy my age to get the number of a girl they enjoyed the company of to hopefully enjoy an encounter in the future? I see a Catch-22 (bee-tee-dubs(btw), what the balls is a Catch-22, I heard like 37 definitions for it and have no real basis to even be discussing one) therein, how do you know you're compatible with said girl if you have been drinking heavily. Don't say you're not going hard on Friday night because you are fellow 20-something-ers. This has happened to me the past 3 weekends. I interact with said girl following, let's say 10-15 some-odd drinks. I'm not to be trusted, understood, or legally trusted at this point. I acquire a number through some will of the Gods and low and behold, after careful calculation (and the girl revealing how much she sucks), I realize she's not a girl I want to take out.

I don't know how to solve this problem, or know if it is really a problem at all. I'm just filling up lines here at this point. Kind of like Tetris, but with words, err something. I've also been getting pumped up with a certain theme song of a certain show. Show being Friday Night Lights--best theme song on television. One 45 second song has never invited so much emotion. I feel happy, sad, angry, and excited after one listen.

Here's the link to the site that plays the song continuously. Yes, I've listened to the song the whole time I wrote this post. You can probably see all the emotions previously mentioned throughout this whole rant. I recommend you watch this show immediately.

PS. Don't click any of the links in the post. They most assuredly are riddled with viruses. The site is straight though if you just want to listen to just the song.

    I like the new set-up, Dub Jeezy.

    Also, according to the book "Catch-22" by BLANK Heller (can't remember his first name because I read it so long ago), and according to my common grasp of the english language, I understand a Catch-22 to be a moment that can only screw you. I.E. You spend the night catching to someone of the opposite sex, and they mention they're into you, but then you find our they're in a relationship, and you find yourself morally sound and thus conflicted. Lose the attractive person, or lose your morals. Catch-22. You can never win.
